    Are these considered good products and good companies by our forum members. Are there any lines to stay away from like PS Performance series or Shuttlemax?

    How is the pricing on cabs.

    Thanks

    Yup, stay away from the Genz Shuttlemax.

    Unless of course you like sweet tone, heaps of power, loads of flexibility, stellar quality, and awesome customer service.

    I like epifani UL 210 and UL410 cabinets and GB Shuttle amps. Please don't buy them so that the price of used gear stays low. I would like to buy more! Just kidding!

    Epifani cabs and GB shuttle amps are fine. Spend more time practicing and less time shopping, LOL.

    (Which means buy them, they're worth it :bassist:)

    I own a UL2 212 and a Shuttlemax 12.0
    Yes, it's overkill, but it sounds amazing.
    I've tried other rigs and this is by far the most transparent and hi-fi sounding combination I've ever heard.

    Yes, they sound great to me, too.

    @OP I would say also that the epifani PS cabs sound fine, much like the original NYC epifani line.

    I also love the light weight and sound of the Shuttle 6.0, though my favorite is still my Mesa M9 (talk about overkill, :eek:).

    Ive tried and or used probably over two dozen 410 cabs. The Genz UB410T is the second best out there next to the Bergantino, and it's a close second. The Epifani UL ranks somewhere around 5 or 6.

    YMMV

    The Epifani Performance Series (PS) cabs are actually very good - they're just not ultra light or neo equipped like the UL line is.
